    « Always a welcome »

    We use this hotel when staying in Belgium as it is close to family in Grobbendonk, easier than travelling from Antwerp every day. The hotel is nice and quiet has a good resturant and bar and the breakfast is excellent especially on a sunday. It has a very good swimming pool so take gear with you. It is also close to Herentals to spend a morning and always Antwerp, our favourite place to explore then to come back and relax in the bar.

    « Improved following some refurbishment »

    This is a hotel just of the junction of the highway so is a bit isolated from other facilities. The rooms have been refurbished since I last stayed and they have done a good job. The rooms aren't the biggest but are comfortable enough with good beds and nice cleanly designed bathrooms. I arrive at 21:00 on a Sunday so there was very little choice for food, just a bar menu. I hadn't stayed here for quite a while as it had become very tired. Clearly vastly improved and now back on my positive list

    « Always familiar »

    A nice, quiet and friendly place, located in the middle of a "virgin" forest, near to Herentals, the hotel offer clean rooms, good restaurants and bar services and excellent facilities for conferences or company reunions. Access is very easy from the highway.

    « Surprisingly good »

    I think the rooms have been updated lately and we were surprised for a Best Western hotel. The rooms are big, the bed is comfortable (a true queen/king size bed, and not 2 single beds pushed together), plenty of decent towels and bathroom amenities, minibar... A good business or stopover hotel and value for the money.

    « Nice Hotel »

    Nice Hotel, big rooms, and good breakfast, easy access to highways if you have car. The bathroom and the bed are very good, nice staff and attention. If you don't have car could be a little complicated

    « No fitness center »

    As stated by others this is conveniently located off the highway to Antwerp. A good three star, you get everything you need, even a decent bar and restaurant. Rooms are fine and functional with large clean bathroom and free wifi. God, efficient service. The only thing was a lack of fitness room even though it's advertised......may be under renovation?

    « Very Handy business stopover »

    Very handy stopover hotel, with a surprisingly acceptable restaurant. Efficient and pleasant staff. Easy reach of motorway, and well placed for alternative restaurants. Parking was a problem one night when there was a daytime event running into the evening.

    « Sure Bet for Business »

    It's a drive-in hotel -- no doubt about that. But the Aldhem Hotel is very good at what it does. Located just off the E313 motorway, and adjacent to the Albert Canal, The Best Western Plus Aldhem is well-managed, clean and appropriately priced. While not necessarily spacious, the rooms are nicely furnished, with good practical features such as lighting and charging outlets; the mid-sized bathroom is equally functional and pleasant. The free wifi was surprisingly fast and robust, which was a significant benefit for us. Plenty of options were offered at the included breakfast, too. While not accessible to train travel nor near tourist attractions, the Aldhem achieves the Holy Grail of business travel goals: "transparent" accommodations, those which, through comfort and functionality, allow the traveler to focus on the tasks at hand, knowing that all one's daily needs are met.

    « Business week near Antwerpen »

    The Hotel is located near to Antwerpen besides a buisy road (still not very noisy). It is not easy to reach unless you use car or taxi. Public transport is a very weak option so if you would like to go out for the night it is not the place to stay. Basic but new and clean rooms. Very friendly staff and the kitchen is something brilliant for dinner!! Breakfast is average. Sauna is hot and there is a small pool but their quality is low. If you have never visited Belgium before bevare of the size of the drinks: they are extremely small. Beers are very good and strong but they are served in 0.25, maximim 0.33 glass so forget the good pint! Vine and juices are coming in 0.1,. 0.2 glasses as if we were in Lilliput. There is a quite posh restaurant about 200 m from the hotel with good food and (small but good) drinks.

    « Nice comfy hotel »

    I stayed here for 4 nights. It was close to the motorway exit but not much else seemed close by. I ate at the hotel one of the nights & the food was nice & reasonably priced. Breakfast was very good & had a good selection compared to other hotels I stayed in in Europe.The bar area is nice but seemed very quiet everytime I went down there. I had a room on the top floor that was comfortable & clean. It was a little small but it was only me & had everything I needed at a good rate. I noticed there is a children's play ground outside if your travelling with younger children. During my stay I went for walks in the evening along the nearby canal, about 3 mins walk away. I think you would need a car staying here as it seemed very quiet around the area.

    This hotel is located close to highway but far from any tourist attractions. 100% you need car to commute. This hotel needs renovation and they doing it bit by bit. Friendly service and good food. Swimming pool is nice.

    « Nice Stay »

    I was quite happy with my stay at this contemporary hotel. The location is somewhat rural while the facility seems relatively new and quite lovely. The rooms are rather nice, the service is good and the morning breakfast is adequate. The room rates are very reasonable by my estimate considering the quality of the product they offer. I was working with my Benelux distributor and needed a hotel near our morning appointment. In my search, I found this place and was happy to give it a try. The reviews were good and I am a Best Western Diamond member. This causes me to gravitate toward BWs, especially in Europe where they tend to fit my budget unlike other US chains. My distributor gave me a ride to the hotel. It was relatively easy to find via GPS though the location was a bit out of the way. It was actually very impressive upon approach as the contemporary design sported somewhat striking aesthetics. The lobby area was small and non-traditional but was also interesting like the exterior. The open area in the entry also reflected the contemporary facility design. I was checked in quickly by a friendly attendant and she gave me a room on the first level. Upon arrival at my room, I found it to be clean and spacious. The view was nothing special but that was more of a function of the surroundings. The furnishings and decor were interesting and appealing. The work area was adequate and the bathroom facility was well laid out. The bed was comfortable and the environs were quiet allowing me to get good sleep. The amenities were in order and the WiFi worked well during my stay. The hotel grounds were actually very nice. There was a tennis court as well as play area for kids. There was virtually nothing within walking distance, however, so it was fortunate that the hotel restaurant offered a good dinner option. The morning breakfast was more than adequate. There were several favorites and it provided a good start to the morning. There were both a few hot items as well as cold items such as breads, fruit and cereals. The room rate was excellent. The AAA rate was €98.10. This was about $115 USD with the exchange rate at the time. I was happy with this rate and thought it was a very good deal. Overall, this is a good option for those who have business in the area. The facility is nice and the location is quiet and out of the way. The rooms are very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast is quite adequate and the room rate is excellent for what you get making it a terrific deal. I will look forward to my next stay if I have business in the area again.

    « A very good conference hotel »

    I visited BEST WESTERN PLUS Aldhem Hotel in October 2015 during a conference meeting. It is a typical, large conference hotel with 68 well equipped rooms and all the necessary facilities for a conference. It is near the highway 313 Antwerp ? Eindhoven, but you will not notice it in the hotel. Rooms and meeting rooms make it a rather large, modern building. There is a large entrance hall running out into the bar and the dining room. Check in/check out went very smoothly and staff is very kind and helpful. I booked directly with the hotel, asking for a quiet room, which I got. I occupied room 205, a very nice single room, with a large bed in it. The mattress is very good, although a little bit soft. The pillows, filled with a kind of plastic filling, feel very warm which is rather unpleasant. By folding a large towel on them makes it more enjoyable to lie on. Under the working table there is a mini bar with a lot of drinks in it. Opposite the bed there is a large LCD-TV, with only 3 Belgian and 2 foreign channels. Perhaps more channels are possible, but there is no instruction booklet. There is plenty of room to store your clothes, there is even a trouser press. Wifi is for free and very stable. I did not use the air-conditioner, so I cannot comment on it. As the room is rather small, there is no need for the small round table and the second chair. The bathroom is rather small, but well equipped with all amenities you need, even a toothbrush and toothpaste and 4 towels. There is a bath tub with shower, but it is not recommendable to take a shower, because the bath is fairly smooth and the safety grip is on the other side of the bath tub opposite the shower. The hot/cold breakfast buffet is abundant and of rather good quality, except the coffee. Several kinds of bread, a lot of milk, meat and cheese products. There are several kinds of juices and fresh fruit. I had dinner in the restaurant, which was very good. All in all, the hotel is very recommen

    « Good hotel »

    I've been at the hotel for business reasons, it is really confortable. Rooms are clean and big, everything is relative new. The surronding area is really quite. The location is close to the highway. I've bee also at the restaurant, they have a good choice and the level of quality is good. Overall I am satisfied.

    « Nice hotel, perfect breakfast »

    Came here cycling on a rainy day and thought I'd treat myself to something nice. I was not disappointed. My room had everything it needed, it was clean and in contrast to other reviews, my bathroom was in a perfect state. Nice pool area, unfortunately the sauna is only heated in the evenings, and... as in so many hotels, it does not get really hot, but at least you can make it feel hotter by pouring water on the stones yourself. The Turkish bath had the right temperature though and it had a nice aroma. But please... put some soap/shampoo dispensers in the showers there. I don't want to know how many people forget their own and then use the facilities not properly washed. Breakfast deserves a medal. So much choice and always replenished. Service at the reception was very nice.

    « First Class Hotel In Woodland Location »

    Located just off the Antwerp - Hasselt motorway this hotel is ideally situated for a peaceful stay in the wooded countryside. Everything about this hotel is scrupulously clean. I had an excellent large room with aircon and a forest view. Really comfortable beds. Excellent breakfasts majoring on Continental but also offering scrambled egg and bacon. My trip was only B&B so I did not try the restaurant a la carte. The public rooms are large and airy plus there is a pool table for recreation. The breakfast room is separate from the dining room. There is plenty of car parking space and large garden areas. Excellent value and full marks.

    « OK hotel »
